Fun = Slk

I felt like driving fast today so I got in my SLK and drove around town to warm the car up. It started to rain a little so I decided to have some fun w/ my car. I took a right turn at a stoplight and put it in first gear and pushed the accel. ~3/4 of the way in and let the car rev up to 6100 rpm and then put it into 2nd took it up to 4500 and then put it into 3rd and took it up to 5900 rpm. The car skid all the way up to 65 mph, I was fishtailing and DSC was coming on to help me out it was great fun, then once I got traction the car rocketed up to about was amazing! I love slks...

Good on you MCFaisal! Sounds like great fun! I don't think I can get away with that having the automatic. But I'll certainly give a try.
